"Studies show that 66% of Americans hate their jobs. They despise their bosses, bemoan their working conditions, and feel like they're not making a difference in the world.

"And, it's not just because people are becoming more entrepreneurial. It's because there aren't enough jobs to go around. According to Gallup polls, 3 billion people in the world say they want to work, but there are only about 1.2 billion full-time, formal jobs. In other words, there are 1.8 billion more people than jobs in the world.
"In the United States, the Bureau of Labor statistics reports that 12.7 million people remain unemployed, while only 3.5 million job openings exist."
